The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at IIT Jodhpur was established in 2017, and the Department is committed to high-quality education and research in the broad area of Materials Engineering. The Department continuously strives for excellence in teaching and research through innovative pedagogy and curriculum, by undertaking interdisciplinary projects, and through active collaborations with industries, R&D labs, and academia. By enabling the students to think independently and equipping them with relevant skill sets, our goal is to encourage the graduates to innovate and address present-day materials challenges to meet the needs of the country.
At present, the Department offers M.Tech., M.Tech.-Ph.D. dual degree, and Ph.D. programs. The Department’s teaching and research activities cover four major streams- structural materials, functional materials, computational materials engineering, and process metallurgy. From structural materials to semiconductors, we attempt to understand the processing, composition and structure, properties, and performance of materials for deriving novel, effective, and sustainable alternatives. Currently, efforts are being made to introduce advanced concepts such as smart materials, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, sensor materials, etc. as a part of solving interdisciplinary problems requiring Materials Engineering knowledge.
The key focus areas of the department are (but not limited to):
(1) Materials Design and Processing
(2) Advanced Structural and Functional Materials
(3) Computational Materials Engineering
(4) Extractive and Process Metallurgy,
(5) Materials Testing and Characterization.
The Faculty Members in the department have expertise in diverse areas of Materials Engineering. They are actively involved in conducting translational research in the fundamental and applied areas of Materials Engineering. The department frequently organizes invited lectures and workshops to share research findings, train students on the state of the art experimental and computational techniques to promote the development of skill sets. The Department welcomes bright people who aspire to utilize the power of ambitious research and teaching to shape a better future.
